CSKA Moscow have won their seventh game out of seven in the Group stage round after beating Brose Baskets in Germany on Wednesday night.
The hosts started well with an early 10-4 lead, but the Russian side managed to find their game to finish the first half seven points ahead of Brose.
The Germans roared back after half time, closing the deficit to just one point and sending the match into some hectic last minutes.
And it was 2010 Euroleague MVP, Milos Teodosic, who nailed a three-pointer with the buzzer, to give the Army Men an 81-78 win.
CSKA remain on TOP of Group B standings, with seven victories after as many games.
“I can compare this game to the one we played against Zalgiris to start the Euroleague,” Jonas Kazlauskas, CSKA coach, told the club’s official website. “The place was so loud that I could not advise the players during the game. I am glad that we were able to control the game, we defended, we attacked in such atmosphere. We had foul troubles in the end, we made several turnovers, but continued to fight even though we have comfortable lead in the group and guaranteed place in Top 16.”
“My congratulations to our opponents, who played a good game. I think the spectators liked what they saw,” he added.
In the meantime, the Russian team’s main rivals Panathinaikos were hosting Zagreb and collected a 94-76 win to feel more comfortable in second place.
In the last Group B game on the night, Lithuanian side Zalgiris claimed their second Euroleague win of the season by beating visiting Unicaja 67-65.
